About the Movie

Martha Beck (Shirley Stoler) is sullen, overweight and heartbreakingly alone. Desperate for affection, she joins Aunt Carrie’s Friendship Club and strikes up a correspondence with Ray Fernandez (Tony Lo Bianco), a suave, charismatic smooth talker who could be the man of her dreams—or a wicked con artist bound for trouble. Based on a true story and filmed in documentary-style black and white, The Honeymoon Killers is a stark portrayal of the desperate lengths to which a lonely heart will go to find true love, from brutally immoral killings to a passion that transcends all bounds.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It is one of the best and, curiously, most beautiful American movies in recent years. – Roger Greenspun, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Made with care, authenticity and attention to detail. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Leonard Kastle brings a spare dignity and genuine depth of characterization to his exploitation subject. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Shot in a grainy grey and white helps to give the film an amateurish and at the same time realistic feel, particularly as it's based on true events. With standout performances from Lo Bianco and Stoler, this is a forgotten gem. – Kim Newman, Empire Magazine, Jun 24, 2010
